Siddharth Pithani, the PR Manager of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, was arrested in Hyderabad on Friday in connection with the actor's suicide case. The Narcotics Bureau (NCB) has taken him into custody and has taken him to Mumbai. He previously lived in the same flat with Sushant for three years.
Police had earlier found out that Sushant had last spoken to Siddharth before committing suicide on June 14th, 2020. Siddharth also met the actor a night before the suicide. CBI officials are probing Sushant's suicide case. Siddharth was also repeatedly questioned by NCB officials in connection with the drugs case that came to light after Sushant's demise.
He was booked under sections 28, 29, and 27 A for an alleged conspiracy. The arrest comes almost two and half months after NCB filed a 12,000-page charge sheet against 33 people, including actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and others in the Bollywood-drugs mafia probe case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
Sushant Singh Rajput's family had already alleged that the role of Siddharth Pithani, in this case, was extremely dubious. And then Siddharth alleged that the late actor's family have been pressuring him to speak against actress Rhea Chakraborty to the police.
